TX5N ---> The team  has been  QRV  from Raivavae  (OC-114),  Austral Islands
since 17 April at 06.40 UTC. They are making about 4,000 QSOs a day. "Inter-
net on the island is erratic and very slow",  the team reported on 20 April.
"We are having  difficulty uploading  anything more  than short emails.  Our
satellite service provider has a problem on their end, with no resolution in
sight". They are also experiencing constant high winds, gusting to about  55
km/h: "one hexbeam guy rope  that was secured  to a small tree stump  pulled
the stump  out of  the ground  and  down came  the hexbeam,  one  fiberglass
spreader broke. Time to remove and replace the broken spreader  with a spare
part was about one hour.  We had to wait for a break in the wind  to restore
the antenna to its fully extended height. The worse news is the 160m antenna
is exhibiting a high SWR,  faulting the amplifier  at about 300 watts".  QSL
via M0URX  (see https://tx5n.net/qsl-manager/  for the  QSL policy).  Please
refrain  from emailing  the team  about  busted/missing calls:  "we are  not
checking for missing or busted calls  from the island.  Please work us again
if you don't see your contact in the log.  After the DXpedition  M0URX  will
research missing/busted QSOs".

+ SILENT KEY + Einar Enderud, LA1EE passed away on  11 April, aged 79.  Back
